Spring onions and curly leaved lettuce and endives are high up the list with very little work you have an abundant crop all summer long. As most herbs are strong growers and have a lot of uses they have always been a garden great. Summer is the time of cocktails and barbeques and a few herbs are essential for both. Mint in its many forms can be used for those refreshing Mojitos as well as for the lamb kebabs. With so many to choose from it's a good idea to have a few growing. As there is an abundance of variegated leaved types they can be decorative as well. Lemon mint and Pineapple mint add a different dimension to potatoes and I guess the old favourites spearmint and peppermint will always be with us. Rosemary is a must for lamb and roast potatoes and lavender is having a bit of a renaissance being used more and more in recipes once again. Thyme is used in so many things, including medicinal remedies, it has to be included. The smell of a rampant herb patch in summer warms the soul clears the mind and gives vigour to the body. Not to mention the beneficial impact it has on insect life.
The size of your pots will also determine your choice of plant, choose containers big enough for the plants full growth. Small root crops such as radishes and onions are great choices, and there are even small root carrots available. Herbs are a popular choice because they are compact and do not need much space. Miniature varieties of tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant can also thrive inside when given the proper care.
Kalanchoe plants also do well in container gardens. Since they can handle drought, they are a bit more forgiving than other plants if you forget to water them! They look great on the patio or as a focal point on your table.How to Grow Ginger Successfully and How to Plant Ginger in Pots
